ProQuest Flow is a new resource that collects, manages and organizes research papers and documents.  You can read annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends by sharing collections. Flow works seamlessly with our ‘MultiSearch’ discovery search.

Introducing ProQuest Flow

A new service from ProQuest is now available - it's called Flow!

Flow helps you collect, mange and organise research papers and documents. Once documents are entered in Flow you can read, annotate, organise and cite your documents. You can also collaborate with colleagues by sharing collections.

It's easy-to-use and integrated with most research sites, ProQuest Flow is a next generation cloud-based research management and collaboration solution that helps researchers better manage citations and full text documents and gain control over the research workflow. Flow comes from the team that delivered RefWorks, the innovators of reference management for more than a decade.

During a MultiSearch session, users new to Flow can easily create a Flow account and begin to save search results from MultiSearch in Flow. Persistent access to both platforms streamlines the workflow making saved research from past sessions accessible and always up to date.

Since Flow is cloud-based, there's no software to install or update. You can access your research instantly on any device. And when it comes to writing, Flow for Word syncs with your library so you can cite right in your document, researchers can seamlessly insert and edit citations while writing in Microsoft Word— no Internet connection required. One click imports all your existing references from EndNote Web!

Flow takes reference management to the next level by helping researchers manage full text documents and their citations to simplify the research and collaboration process. It goes beyond the capabilities of your average reference management tool, making it a much more robust research management solution.
